Haiku time



Fascist water(464)
Mitford was white
On tap at the eagle´s
her stubborn heart

Corruption(464)
Corrupt get rich
Selling future progress
Rich poverty

Gossip
Words find lost lips
Lucky hearsay dip´s speak
Behind back quips peak.

Truth
I had the truth
curved it almost snapped it
shaping a lie

Lie
I had a lie
Bent it almost broke it
Shaping the truth

Lecture(575)
Numb bum and sprained brain
Ears are lent and notes are scribbled
Synapses quibble

Confession
Now speak in the box
Guilt butterflies in a cage
Cocoon cut exposed

p*rn
All over her face
Sigh, moan, whinge, murmur, scream, wheeze
Creme, smile for the cam.
